Van Halen – ‘Women and Children First’ RIAA Platinum Record Award To Warner Brothers Chairman

A vintage 1980 RIAA Platinum Record Award for Van Halen’s album Women and Children First, presented to Russ Thyret (1944-2021), the former Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Records who at the time of this album’s certification was Warner Bros’ head of promotion, and very important to the band’s success.

Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold is a former Executive Vice President/General Manager of Warner Bros. who worked closely with Thyret, and obtained this directly from Thyret’s estate.

In overall excellent condition; when we obtained this there was some chipping to the paint on the bottom corners, which we have carefully touched up.  There is some minor scuffing to the frame and plexi as well, but this displays very nicely. 17″ x  21″.

With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee.
